Last updated

Saints' trip to Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season is one of three matches picked for live television coverage.

Ronald Koeman will now take his side to Anfield on Sunday, August 17, for a 1.30pm kick-off.

Saints will face a reunion with Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana that day, after both players were sold to the Reds this summer.

The club's visit to Aston Villa has also been moved, and will now take place on Monday, November 24, at 8pm.

Saints' home game against Manchester City has also been switched for television, and will now take place at 1.30pm on Sunday, November 30.

All three games will be shown by Sky Sports.

As a result of the Manchester City match being changed, Saints' visit to Arsenal has been pushed back by 24 hours and will now take place on Wednesday, December 3, at 7.45pm.

In the meantime BT Sport has not chosen to show Saints at all between the start of the season and the end of November.

This is a pain in the backside for me. A very early morning Saturday train from East Anglia might not get me to Liverpool in time, and then a 4 am Tuesday morning kickoff for the Villa match after I get back here.

I tried to post the following comments against The Star's article about Lovren this afternoon. UnlikeTthe Echo, The Star "moderate" comments, which means they will not post it. There is nothing offensive, just some polite criticism of their reporting - here it is: "Lovren has kept completely quiet since returning to pre-season training and going to Belgium with the Saints first team. So how on earth can The Star report that he is "still" desperate to move? They have no idea how he feels right now!. The media already made the situation worse by distorting the facts - something both Lovren and Southampton are now aware of. Lovren will have plenty of time to chat to Ronald Koeman who is adamant that he will stay with the Saints. It is extremely unlikely that Lovren will now leave but if the reconciliation is not possible then Southamption would not budge on the £25m and may ask for even more. Other clubs need to take note of this - Southampton are now flushed with funds and will NOT be selling any more players - end of story. The Star should be printing that - not stirring things up . The media need to show far more responsibility rather than cooking up false stories. For the record, Jay Rod is definitely not for sale at any price (unless Liverpool want to re-invest all the £75m they got for Suarez!!!"

It will be nice to watch us get the 3 points in only, what, about 4 weeks!

Wonder if AL will get substituted? Also, if Rickie is going to score, I hope he waits until he is at St. Mary's.

It's what happens when you play a big club. You get on TV so that Sky and all the big media corporations get lots and lots of money. Nobody at Sky or BT bats an eyelid about fans travelling to the games and the stress it could cause them- just as long as they get their big fat payouts. Or why else would they have moved games such as Norwich v Liverpool to a Sunday 12pm kick off when it is some four and a half hours from Liverpool to Norwich?

I feel sorry for Saint's fans who are going to be humiliated by seeing former players helping Liverpool to a well earned victory on the day.
It's rather sad that Southampton will undoubtedly end up in a lower position in the premiership than the lowly 8th position achieved this season, but alas that is life.

It is good news as you qite rightly state however i am a little confused that as Saints finished in lowly 8th and Liverpool were so much better how can you expect to improve signing a load of lowly 8th position palyers? Umm trying to solve this conundrum but all i can think of Brenda Rogers knew Louis was off and they would lose there bite but spending the money before he left probably wasn't the best aproah ask the spuds from north London as the discovered last season it does not always work out. IMO Liverhampton will not finish top 4 next season and after MP gets the boot from Spuds It will be Brenda aplying for the job as he would have been sacked by the end Jan 2015. When this happend RK and the boys will have a wry smile and wink to those who thought the grass would be greener n the other side of the fence.

So funny when the hub cap steelers were at St. Marys this season....i seem to remember them constantly chirping...'now you're gonna believe us, now you're gonna believe us, now you're gonna believe us......were gonna win the league!'

You probably weren't there on that occasion, no doubt owing to commencing your love for LFC around the 80's and being a plastic but my how i laughed when you completely proceeded to royally balls things up!!

I had a bit of hope that you would win the league prior to this game but after the txssers bragging like they did glad you messed it up winning nowt all year.

Best player couldnt get out quick enough and you sign 2 players from lowly SFC and you think you will now do better? Dream on numpty and get back to your armchair.

We may finish lower than last season but one things for sure, you aint gonna win naff all this coming season and most likely wont mske top four. Enjoy plazzer.

The fact of the matter is that, the former Saint's players that you describe as " lowly " have one great asset that a lot of players don't have and that is AMBITION which was never going to be realised whilst they were at Southampton.

Rickie Lambert cuts short holiday to begin pre-season training with new Liverpool teammates
• Jul 14, 2014 20:55

Reds' England contingent weren't due to report back for duty until squad fly to Boston for the club's tour of America this Sunday

Rickie Lambert has signalled his intention to make a flying start to his Liverpool FC career by returning to pre-season training a week ahead of schedule.
The Reds' England contingent weren't due to report back for duty until Brendan Rodgers' squad fly to Boston for the club's tour of America this Sunday.
However, the 32-year-old boyhood Kopite opted to cut short his holiday in order to ensure he's firing on all cylinders ahead of the new campaign.
The £4million summer signing from Southampton was at Melwood on Monday to begin work with the club's fitness staff - less than three weeks after England's World Cup campaign in Brazil ended in bitter disappointment.
Lambert won't play in Wednesday's opening friendly against Brondby in Denmark and is unlikely to feature against Preston at Deepdale on Saturday.
His first taste of action for Liverpool is set to be against Roma in Boston on Wednesday, July 23.
Fellow England internationals Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling, Glen Johnson, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana will also be on the club's US tour from the start. They will begin their pre-season at the Reds' Harvard University training base.
Lazar Markovic's £20million move from Benfica to Liverpool will be confirmed on Tuesday after the Serbian winger completed his medical.

Great news that Liverpool's opening match against Southampton is being televised .

I feel sorry for Saint's fans who are going to be humiliated by seeing former players helping Liverpool to a well earned victory on the day.
It's rather sad that Southampton will undoubtedly end up in a lower position in the premiership than the lowly 8th position achieved this season, but alas that is life.
Is it great news? Or does it mean you don't need to buy a ticket? No cause to feel sorry for the Saints, even if "you" are to blame for a lot of our problems, I suggest you worry about your own problems, there will be many. Your gloating may also be premature and may come back to bite you.

It will be hard for Rickie as well he knows, hence he's getting back as soon as he can. But his best days are well behind him now as Hodgson found out in Brazil. The struggles with fitness will only get harder. That said he will always remain a Saints legend but Fonte and Lovren (he's our player and will be playing for us) will have no problems keeping him RL quiet on 17th. The same can be said of Steeevie Geeee that great underperformer (or great performer if he's a circus act and you are a Chelsea fan) who along with Henderson makes up the slowest midfield in the prem.
